"I’m enjoying exploring the music of Piazzolla ... (it’s fascinating) to hear how (Cotik) interprets the passionate music of his great countryman."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Four Stars ... an exceptional point of view on Piazzolla’s broad range of work. Cotik and Lin view the scope of Piazzolla’s work through the lens of the violin-piano sonata, as rigorous and detailed as Piazzolla is likely to get, but also with free expression. The romance, longing and violence are all here ..."
- DownBeat

"Some of the music is sultry while other works are fast, rhythmic and ornamented to show the exquisite virtuosity of Cotik and Lin. They finish with a rousing dance called Libertango ... a perfect finale for this CD of catchy, toe-tapping music. Many other artists have recorded Piazzolla’s works, but not with violin and piano. The sound on this disc is clear and the performances precise. I think that lovers of tango music will definitely want this fascinating disc."
- Fanfare

Argentinian violinist Tomas Cotik and Shanghai-born pianist Tao Lin marked the 20th anniversary of the death of Astor Piazzolla in 2012 with this highly acclaimed recording of two of his most popular and enduring pieces, Oblivion and Libertango, presented here in Cotik’s unique arrangements. Among the programme's other works, Cotik and Lin summarize the genre’s entire evolution with the Histoire du Tango, while Le Grand Tango is a virtuoso show stopper.

"I made sporadic attempts to get this project off the ground during several return trips to Buenos Aires, but it was the 20th anniversary of Piazzolla’s death in 2012 that motivated me to realize my dream. The goal was to authentically recreate the language of the Nuevo Tango in arrangements employing a variety of styles, from extremely simple to near-virtuosic, reviving the violence and sensuality of Piazzolla's music by using the highest recording quality."
- Tomas Cotik
192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 2.8224 MHz, 5.6448 MHz DSD – 2xHD - Naxos Studio Masters

In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors.The process begins with a transfer to analogue from the original 24-bit / 96 kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analogue signal is then sent through a high end tube preamplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

DSD and 192 kHz / 24-bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analogue signal.

2xHD mastering: René Laflamme
2xHD executive producer: André Perry

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
